Vocational Support Services

  • Vocational Support Services (VSS) provides instructional support to students enrolled in career and technology education programs leading to an A.A.S. degree.  Our staff members introduce students to assessments that assist students with identifying learning strengths, targeting areas for improvement, and building the skills for successful learning in order to accomplish individual educational goals. The student and VSS staff member(s) work with other campus support services to identify barriers to success and develop strategies to help the student deal effectively with the demands of college studies.
